    I’m not “patiently waiting”. I’m way over patients...waiting yes, I guess.

    Tell me more about how people got suckered into LEs? I got all the features I wanted at prices that match the standard rates. Plus I still got the deal I wanted from my dealer. Plus I get an upgraded dash vs the one that many plan to paint or wrap. It was said before the LEs were even sold that they wouldn’t be the first available to consumers. But I got a nicer vehicle at a price I wanted than I could have gotten with a non le version.

    Some of us suckers are just happy to actually have one ordered. Feel free to let us know when you drive one off of the dealer lot!

    Edit: Never-mind; enjoy that $45k Tundra if you ever get it.

    Why is that? I can have whatever I want and I want the Launch Edition. I will drive it but it is also something that will become a collectors item for my kids. A plain Gladiator is a plain Gladiator today and in 30 years.
